At a press conference, a cooking knife with a special spirit is being presented to the public. The knife belongs to the last Korean royal chef of the Joseon Dynasty who cut his arms with this knife to show his loyalty to king and country.
The Japanese bureaucrat at the time was deeply moved by his conviction and returned to Japan with this knife. Now, his son has come to Korea to return the precious knife back to someone who really deserves to own it and announces a cooking contest to fi nd the best cook for this knife.
